Hi @shantesh,

It seems like your port 8000 is either in use by a different service or for some reason ghost couldn’t actually create the socket.

Please run

sudo netstat -tulpen | grep 8000

and see if port 8000 is already in use. If it is then change the port on ghost config or disable the process that is using the port from your ghost configuration file.

If this doesn’t help, please provide us with your configratuon file and th e ouput of this command

netstat -tulpen
